Bugs that look like lint
I have been infested with tiny pieces of lint that sting when its on my body.  I have marks that looks like someone stuck me with a pin.  I called an exterminator and he said looked like a bed bug, however I don't think that they are.  he charged me $300 to treat my place.  I called him after 2 weeks and said that there were no bugs in my place and that I was panicking.  I got rid of my sofa and bed and have sent almost everything I own for dry cleaning.  I feel sometimes that I am crawling my feet, my hair - my whole body.  My doctor checked my hair and said that there was
nothing there.  It's worse if I'm hot or sweating.  Please help me.

Don't know what to do next.

Hello,
For such symptoms dermatitis skin and parasthesia should be ruled out. Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.

Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the tingling is gone or not.

In case the symptoms persist then get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Have had the same thing going on a year now... I think that they may actually be some kind of fungus and not an insect.  Having tests done soon for this, but as always, having it positively identified is another issue.  Doctors have no clue about this thing, and will just lable you as having "delusions of parasitosis", so be careful an do NOT bring in samples or claim that they are 'bugs'.  Rather, explain your symptoms and allow the Dr. to suggest a remedy.  This will no doubt be a waste of your time and money, so doing your own research and finding treatment that works  for you is my suggestion.  Good luck and please share your findings.

It's actually one of the first initial symptoms of Morgellons Disease and it'll eventually be accompanied by even more emotionally, mentally, and physically disturbing symptoms that will definitely make you feel like you just want to die.
